Sheffield Wednesday are yet to activate an extension in Alex Hunt’s contract, with Charlton Athletic and Ipswich Town monitoring his situation.
Led to believe that both Charlton Athletic and Ipswich Town are keeping an eye on Alex Hunt…#SWFC have a one-year option on him, but it’s not been exercised yet to my knowledge. https://t.co/V2ddkoHtB3 🦉⚽️

The midfielder struggled for game time with the Owls as they were relegated from the Championship, but some fans believe the 20-year-old could have a more prominent role to play in the third tier.
However, it’s unclear as to whether Hunt will stay, with the Sheffield Star revealing that the Owls are yet to trigger the 12-month option they have in Hunt’s deal, with the Addicks and Tractor Boys considering a move for the player.

Following relegation, many fans had hoped that Wednesday would look to build around the younger players at Hillsborough.
But, there was a mixed response to this news, with some feeling that Hunt won’t be good enough to play a part in a promotion push, yet others are baffled by the lack of action from the club.
Here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
Be very poor yet again from the club to lose him. Think he would do very well in league one.

I know he has some potential but anyone else not seen enough from him when he has played to not be overlay upset?

I genuinely don't understand what this football club is doing. Chansiri is gonna get a massive shock when the fans are allowed back because some people simply won't go. There is no news. The club is constantly on silent mode. What Chansiri has done is unforgivable.
